ST-10M – Mono Power Amplifier

ST-10M – Mono Power Amplifier

£1,400.00

The ST-10M Mono Power Amplifier builds upon NuPrime’s fourth generation (V4) amplifier module from the ST-10 and brings it to the next level. The ST-10 was designed within the space limitation of its chassis and hence had a power system which was capable of providing 150W power output to each of the stereo channels. To really bring out the best of the V4 amplifier module, the ST-10M has a new 300W power supply for its mono channel. The entire design including the chassis has been optimised for the mono configuration, further lowering the cross channel interference.

Description

The ST-10M Mono Power Amplifier sees the original 10A bridge rectifier replaced by a 50A Schottky diode, the capacitors upgraded to 30,000 micro-Farad, and duly the power transformer is now rated at 300W. Throughout the ST-10M an improved circuit layout has been achieved with careful component selection that has resulted in a lower noise floor than the ST-10 Stereo Power Amplifier.

The NuPrime Sound

The ST-10M delivers a more full bodied and rich sonic performance, it conveys greater immediacy and power as compared to the ST-10. The improved power delivery and reduced interference gives the instruments richer overtones and more natural decay. The soundstage is deeper and creates a greater sense of space. The imaging of the ST-10M more solid.

The improvements are demonstrable. The striking of piano keys arrives with greater attack and faster transients, a sound that naturally resonates with the piano body. Brass instruments sound glorious, characterful and carry a natural sheen without ever being “bright”. Female vocals and high frequencies retain the signature of the ST-10 but they arrive in a smoother, more refined fashion through the ST-10M. In an ensemble, the tonality gains an extra notch of richness which makes the overall presentation more natural.

With the ST-10M, every aspect of the ST-10 sound has been improved upon, pushing the ST-10M into reference grade territory.

ST-10M is a phase inverting amp. If you are certain that the +/- (usually the red/white connectors) phase of your inputs are non inverting, then you should reverse the +/- inputs for each channel on ST-10M.  All other NuPrime amps were designed as non-inverting amp.  If you have no idea what this is all about, don’t bother with making any adjustment.

There is no 12V trigger for ST-10M.
